More good things

Thank you for all the lovely comments ....72!..... welcoming Colin home from hospital. He is so pleased to be home but is  exhausted, it's going to take a while to build up strength again. Our eldest and baby Jacob are here this weekend and we are looking forward to seeing him again as last visit was just as he was beginning to be a poorly little man. Since he was fixed he has put on weight and from photos we can see how well he looks but having him here for a few days will be better. Colin has to be careful to avoid infections so apart from H and Jacob we will be having a quiet few weeks without visitors so he can rest and recover.

 Another bit of good news............Dean Street Press very kindly offered me a  proper book copy of Bewildering Cares by Winifred Peck after all. I'm looking forward to that arriving so I can read and review.
I really enjoyed "Housebound" by her that Persephone reprinted a while ago.
  This is what it will look like. All the books they are reprinting under The Furrowed Middlebrow logo
Product Details
 have lovely covers like this. 9 coming out in October including Chelsea Concerto by Frances Faviell which is also another book  about life in WWII and I'm being very extravagant and buying it new.

And finally, if I had bought the A4 cutting mat at Aldi at the same time as I got the storage box last week then I wouldn't have gone back and found they had A3 cutting mats in stock. An A3 is more useful and I snapped one up for £2.99.

  2. Great news about Col and your much longed for visitors. Did you get a pink mat? At our craft group yesterday there was a rash of them! I may just have succumbed to some fat quarters which seem good value for £3.99. Catriona

    1. No they didn't have A3 in pink so it had to be green. Were the fat quarters from Aldi too? none at our local one

    2. Apparently they all went within a couple of hours last Thursday morning. I'm a volunteer tutor with a charity and I provide my own materials so this price is ideal for my purposes. Catriona

  7. So glad Colin is home. Sending prayers for the swift recovery of his health and energy! I can't wait to hear about the Winfred Peck book. I am so glad Dean Street Press is reprinting some of the great old books.

  12. So very glad to hear Col is now back home with you. I'm sure seeing Jacob this weekend will be just the tonic for both of you. xxx

  13. Enjoy having Colin home. I always think homes are better than hospital for infection control. At least you can limit who visits. Hospitals are a melting pot of germs.
